Dishwasher: Can’t adjust rack height

Some dishwashers allow you to adjust the upper dishrack height so you can load taller items in the bottom rack. If you can’t adjust upper dishrack height, check the upper rack height adjuster and replace it if damaged.

The upper dishrack also sags to one side when the upper rack height adjuster breaks. If you can’t adjust the rack so it sits evenly, replace the upper rack height adjuster.

These repairs may help solve your Dishwasher problem:

Replace the dishwasher upper rack height adjuster

Height adjuster assembly

The upper rack height adjuster allows the dishrack to be raised and lowered when loading dishes. The upper rack height adjuster has several plastic clips and components. If any of the components are cracked or broken, then disassemble the upper rack height adjuster and replace the defective parts.
